The Voice shocked fans on Wednesday with the announcement of a major shakeup to the coaches’ panel. The hit show revealed that the Spring 2025 lineup of coaches will consist of Kelsea Ballerini, Michael Bublé, John Legend, and Adam Levine. 

The news was announced via a video shared on The Voice’s official social media accounts.

“It’s official. I am so, so, so beyond excited to be joining The Voice next year, y’all. Let’s go Team Kelsea,” the GRAMMY nominee shared in the clip. This will mark Ballerini’s first season as a coach, however, it won’t be her first time on The Voice set. Previously, she served as a battle advisor for season 16 and filled in for Kelly Clarkson as a coach for a brief period during season 20.

Legend and Levine are of course seasoned pros on The Voice. The upcoming spring season marks Legend’s 10th season on the show. Levine is making his long-awaited return following his run of 16 consecutive seasons on the show.  

 “What is The Voice without Team Legend? I am excited to be back on The Voice next year,” he quipped. “See you soon!” 

Levine added, “Team Adam is back. Feel bad for other teams.”

The Voice will return to NBC this fall for its 26th season. The fall coaches lineup includes Reba McEntire, Snoop Dogg, Gwen Stefani, and Bublé.

McEntire will make her return to the show following her inaugural season, which wrapped this spring. Team Reba’s Asher HaVon was crowned the winner of Season 25. To celebrate his win, the country music icon joined him on stage to perform soulful duet of “On My Own,” by Patti LaBelle and Michael McDonald. 

“The Voice” is the most-watched alternative series for the 2023-24 season, according to NBC.
